Examples of federal embezzlement can include:

  • Stealing property from a national park
  • Theft of property that is owned by a private entity but that was paid for by the government
  • Stealing property from the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Postal Service, or Social Security / Social Security Disability Insurance Program
  • Stealing property from online retailers such as eBay and Amazon
  • Employee of a bank, lending institution, credit union, or insurance company who has stolen property that he or she is placed in charge of but does not have direct ownership of

Federal Penalties for Embezzlement

Federal embezzlement laws are broken down by the type and amount of money or property stolen. Federal embezzlement can be punished by felony or misdemeanor charges. Federal penalties can vary by case. Generally speaking, an individual could face imprisonment or fines.

Felony convictions could result in $250,000 fines, and misdemeanors could result in $100,000 fines. In addition to these fines, a judge may decide to impose an additional fine of up to twice the value of what the victim lost.
